want to talk about the good news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegit miz this president, why is he doing well in the toughest states? >> we've talked about what campaign has done wrong. we haven't spent as much time talking about the things obama has done right. obama has done a lot of things right. for one thing, he's just a stronger candidate. he relates to people better. he's more approachable. his favorability rates are higher, while romney has high unfavorability ratings. but obama actually has a set of principles he believes in. so, he has a message that he carries out on the campaign trail over and over again. mitt romney doesn't appear to have anything he believes in so he has spent a lot of the campaign flip-flopping. obama makes early moves that are -- >> i understand you -- >> -- that are doing well for him. >> i believe you understand they made a smart, strategic move to go after the 1% and go after fairness an
. the anti-muslim video that provoked the protests while defending the right to free speech. >> obama: americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views. even views we profoundly disagree with. and on this, we must agree there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eliot: the president warned iran that while it still had time to demonstrate its nuclear program was peaceful, that time was not unlimited. >> obama: make no mistake a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> eliot: the president also spoke out against human trafficking in a speech at the clinton global initiative. a little earlier, it was mitt romney who basked in the former president clinton's presence before rapped sizing over plans to help developing natio
obama is in new york right now. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. >> there was president obama giving a speech. >> i accept people are going to call me awful things every day. >> then there was mitt romney. >> the few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> if he's going to double down on that 47, that will cause difficulties. >> wait a couple of days for that bounce. >> he has no past that i can ever spot. >> i can appreciate your kind words. >> when i was a boy i used to think that becoming rich and becoming famous would make me happy. boy, was i right. >> yeah, he said that. with just 42 days until the presidential election and with a new poll showing mitt romney's path to the presidency rapidly narrowing, paul ryan is rapidly realizing that he is well on his way to becoming the next losing vice president candidate. so he is desperately trying to avoid the stench of romney. yes, the stench. that is what paul ryan is actually calling mitt romney, according to politico. reportedly he has been marching around the campaign bus saying
in an election, and yet the polls suggest that barack obama right now would win. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time, and the damage done to the economy could not be fully repaired in four years, and most of the debt that's been run up on his watch is a direct result of the economic collapse, first the recession that began in 2007 and the economic collapse that happened in 2008, which has driven tax revenues down below 15% of income for the first time in 50 years, and driven spending above 21% of income, because so many people are on unemployment and food stamps and medicaid. medical assistance. if we had -- when the economy recovers a higher rate of growth, which it will in the next year or so, what's going to happen is with nothing happening, tax receipts will go up to about 17%, spending will drop to under 21%. there will still be a substantial deficit but it will be much smaller. president obama's main contribution to this $16 billion debt which is -- a $1 trillion debt which is a ten-year
of optimism about what you can do for them in the future, and that's so important for president obama right now, because mitt romney is making the case that the president cannot fix the economy, that he's the only one who can do that and the public at least for now seems to be saying you know what, that may not be true. we're going to give him another shot at it. >> john, did all this stuff happen really in the wake of the convention? it seems like, maybe i'm wrong, but the convention kind of changed the narrative or the mood or something. did it? >> there's no question that the democrats, meaning the president, got much more out of his convention than governor romney and the republicans got out of theirs. part of that is by the nature of going last. it always helps to be the second convention. part of that is even republicans will concede privately the democrats had a more organized, more consistent message. they had better speakers. michelle obama, bill clinton, president obama did a better job making their case, selling their case to the american people. one other thing, though. that 47%
's at 237 right now. those are the blue states. strong or leaning president obama's way. anders anderson, if the president were to win ohio and win florida and the polls show him leading right now, game over. there's nothing else he has to do if the map doesn't change. >> amazing how it boils down to that. gloria, the president holds very strong numbers on the economy interestingly enough in these states, in particular he polls high on the question who better understands the financial problems that people are facing and that's despite the fact that those polls feel the country's on the wrong track. what does that say to you? >> well, it says what the president has done is he's connected with people to let them know he's on their side. that's a key thing to do in a presidential race. does this president understand my economic problems. even though they believe that the country is headed on the wrong track, those numbers are high, but they're not as high as they were, say, six months ago, and what this also says to me is that they bought the bill clinton argument from the convention which
for the obama campaign and that's overconfidence. the polls look so good for obama right now that the obama campaign has to hope that they get out and vote. >> hogan, similar question to you because this time on the romney surrogates basically blaming the media. when in doubt, go to that. "wall street journal" writes that mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforced errors than less on the fourth estate's political bias. is romney looking do you think though for any excuse now to explain why he's down in this race given the economic circumstances in the country that everyone's been talking about and the fact that that should be a strong suit and winning on that? >> igt. well, i mean, look. everyone knows that predominant amount of the media will vote democratic in this election. i mean, that's been pretty much proven by every poll and statistic out there. >> what was that? >> white house press corpse votes democratic. most of the white house press corps votes democratic. that's nothing new. don't whine an it. you know the battlefield you're entering in to. what you have
hours ago right here on cnn. the other day on "60 minutes" president obama said some of his campaign ads quote, go overboard. well, today in ohio, cnn's jim acosta asked mitt romney if he was willing to make a similar admission. here's an extended portion of that interview. >> just the other day, you said the president has been trying to fool people with his ads and his speeches about your record, but fact checkers have also taken issue with your ads. haven't you also played fast and loose with the facts from time to time? >> we've been absolutely spot-on and any time there's anything that's been amiss, we correct it or remove it. the president, on the other hand -- >> even the welfare ad? >> absolutely. look, it has been shown time and again that the president's effort to take work requirement out of welfare is a calculated move, the same thing he did with regards to food stamps. he took work out of welfare -- excuse me, work out of the food stamps requirement. what was the result? the study shows that twice as many people went from having food stamps to those that are able-bodied to --
newsoll owinpresent obama with a significant lead. >> the purpose of the people right now, most of them doing these polls, they're trying to make news, not reflect it. they're all democrats. they're all liberals. s .oin ysi they want you thinking it's over for what you believe. and that makes you stay home and not vote. that's what they're hoping. that's why you have to fight it every day, stephan. >> the 47% of the american people who mitt roey decided mp friwhhed lie about in a thought only his super rich friends were listening have now taken over the presidential campaign. >> what he said is not my job to worry about these people. well, whose job is it? ladind gtl, were brother's keeper. we are one nation under god. we are all in this together. and if the 47% doesn't make it, the country esn't make it. >> in tonight's nate silver >> in tonight's nate silver updatef the new york times blog fraufts that on november 6th president obama will wen 312 vos d mitt romney will th25es hha ofniaskeckp to 80%. joining me now is krystal ball. senator turner it's all about ohio. we keep saying no
. where does that leave us? i think obama has done the right thing in terms of trying to use sanctions, trying to even have the cyber attack. it's not like he hasn't been engaged on it. but it just comes right down to the fact that the only thing that's going to stop them is attacking them. >> bill: i don't know about that. i'm going to put forth another scenario. i want to correct one thing. we do know what romney is going to do. he's going to embrace israel harder. he's going to say look, i'm -- >> how is that going to change anything? really, bill? >> bill: romney basically said he's being going to back their play and obama won't. >> i don't understand -- >> bill: he's not going to stop them. >> what is romney specifically going to do? go to war? >> bill: no, he's going to back israel and if they come to him and say now is the time, the governor will probably say go ahead. >> obama has done the same thing. obama has told them that. >> bill: no, he hasn't. >> yes, he has. >> bill: believe me when i tell you. netanyahu is no -- if netanyahu could vote, he's not voting for obama. there
in here now? all right. directly ahead, john stossel investigating whether or not the obama administration has watered down welfare work requirements. and then is it legal on a texas woman arrested, taken to jail for letting her children play outside. you think we're kidding? we're not. those reports are coming up ely. >> bill: stossel matters segment, when president obama took office, 32 million americans were on food stamps. now the number is 47 million. there are charges that the obama administration wants to get as many people as possible on the dole. >> when i think o reengage people in politics is we're doing serious policy work around what i will label working poor, they were struggling. and to the extent that we are doing research figuring out what kinds of government action will successfully make their lives better, we are putting together a potential majority of coalition that will vote. >> bill: we asked john stossel to investigate whether or not welfare work requirements are being watered down by the obama administration, perhaps for political reasons. here is stossel, the auth
of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. >> mitt romney also touched on the issue earlier today. >> i sure would like to see some experienced referees come back to the nfl playing fields. >> paul ryan called those refs out today. are you glad he did that? >> that's just fine. paul was angry that the packers, he believes they won and the refs took it away from them. >> push this button and i'll laugh. he has no clue. ryan isn't the only angry wisconsin politician. union-busting governor scott walker tweeted out after catching a few hours of sleep, the paccer game is still painful. return the real refs. walker and ryan all of a sudden, aren't they for busting unions until it affects the outcome of their football team? this is unbelievable their reversal on this. president obama tweeted today. nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs lock out is settled soon. i have to be fair about this. it would have been nice to see that tweet about the chicago public school teachers. the story is about more than just a blown call. it's about labor. th
a break. it is time to get the real refs. you know what, it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it's time to get out. i happen to think that these refs work part time for the obama administration in the budget office. >> bill: former presidential candidate and speaker of the house, newt gingrich announc jo. >> greta: the headlines, "obama comes to new york for barbara walters, and sort of u.n." why isn't he meeting with anybody? >> i think it's a comment on the depth of his arrogance. i think this is a person that doesn't care what the world thinks, doesn't care what the american people thinks. if he gets re-elected, he'll be right and the rest of us will be wrong. i mean, his view is all about a cynical, calculated approach. "the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, wh
to see you, sir. >> hey. he's right. you blue at barack obama, not only did he make a whole host of promises in this country that he didn't fulfill -- remember back in 2007, it was barack obama who made the sales pitch to our country and the world that balls of his background, living in indonesia, in a muslim country, that he was going to bring a special type of diplomacy to northern africa and the middle east. now we're seeing the results of barack obama. now, he's the guy that -- that said that mitt romney was shooting first and aiming later when mitt romney criticized the fact that barack obama had to walk back the statements made from an embassy in egypt. now the media is fixated on asking questions about that, but they should be asking questions to barack obama as to why would you as president of the united states have to walk back comments of your own embassy in egypt? and so it is aiken to jimmy carter of 1979. it'he hasn't been able to take control of these things going on overseas. >> greta: there's criticism of the romney/ryan that they need a plan, like with the econom
that there is no way they can do away with if it obama is re-elected. that's right. i don't know how you undo a law like that -- >> dana: where did you hear that? liberal blog? >> bob: probably was. >> dana: the latest person to contradict the white house on the terror attack in benghazi. does he think the anti-muhammad movie related to the murder of four americans? you will hear from him directly when we come back. ♪ ♪ i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood
on the ground. more intel than we do. not to say that president obama season kind of right saying he had the violence that spreading throughout the middle east is because of the movie. it may be. the four people who are dead aren't dead because of the movie. they're dead because of a terrorism attack. >> dana: who spread the word about the movie? >> greg: that is the question. that is the million-dollar question. we don't have a smoking gun. we have a smoking bazooka. primary source with inside information, which means the three major networks are going to ignore it. which means the real story is where is the story about the film come from? where is the primary source? who decided that the film was at fault? some enterprising journalist, somebody with more time than any of us should find out where that started. in this case, you don't follow the money, you follow the means. >> bob: can i follow what he said here? he has his own problems in libya, which is severe. part of the country where more and more terrorist groups are coming in. they're not connected with al-qaeda. but they take the
president obama and when president obama is right, i'll vote with him and when he's not, i won't. i vote on behalf of the people. think it's fr to say that in puanhe most important thing we can do is stand up and do what's right for our country. >> why are republicans not coming to bat for richard? this is -- i don't see the fever pitch attitude for him i have bseined ther races. republican. to me an american hero, richard lugar, before the primary and after the primary. hoosier republicans, hoosier democrats, they don't believe that medicare is unconstitutional like mourdock d t evatlo health care shouldn't cover cancer care. >> what about the outside money? is that a player? >> it is breathtaking. carl rove just dropped1 millioin the past few days for one weekf visi. an inathat like buying every commercial for the entire week. >> how does the automobile loan, does that play in your state? >> yeah, particularly for the fact that richard mourdock was the person to file suit for the liquidation of chrysler. he spent $3 million on new york law firm fees while at the same time that's indian
if chantix is right for you. >> bill: who are president obama's supporters and just how knowledgeable are they about their candidate and his campaign? howard stern decided to find out just like he did back in 2008. his producers hit the streets of new york city. here's what he got. >> if obama wins this time, are you hoping that we finally catch and kill osama bin laden? >> umm, honestly, i don't agree with the whole war thing. if we -- >> do you think he should just go to jail, then, bin laden? >> yeah. he could be tortured. you know, i don't believe in killing. >> do you think obama made the right choice by choosing paul ryan as his vice president? >> yes. >> do you like obama because he's pro-life? >> yeah. i'm for that, yeah. >> does it bother you that obama is a mormon? >> no, but he sways his votes a lot in the way that people look at him. >> how do you think sarah palin will do as mccain's running mate in 2012? >> i'm not telling. >> there's talk he'll drop sarah palin in this election. are you going to vote for him then? >> yes. >> bill: here with reaction david webb and from
to the campaign message of president obama, that he's the guy that relates to the middle class. >> that's right. you saw in that ad that we went around and talked to middle class voters across america and we talked to only people who voted for president obama. all in the middle class, all around this country. they're all changing their vote to mitt romney because of these issues, jobs and the economy, and they have seen that mitt romney's plan for a stronger middle class will work. so that's why these folks are changing their position. >> gretchen: sasha, i thought mitt romney was the out of touch rich guy? >> i do, too. >> gretchen: no, no, that's how he's been portrayed. but he's 14 points ahead with the people who are middle class! >> it's interesting what you said in terms of what he's laid out is better for the middle class because i think that's actually exactly why he is doing better with them is because the details aren't out. when you hear the "60 minutes" interview, he said the devil is in the details. that's right. when people hear what he actually wants to do, they're against him. t

[ laughter ] >> gretchen: romney speak yesterday at clinton's annual global conference. what he's alluding to is that over the last six months or so, bill clinton disagreed with president obama's main policies on the economy and taxes, and that could be seen as a help to mr. romney. >> brian: mitt romney is apparent and this is the story about being a favorite. do you have a favorite? i never heard it admitted. in terms of a kid, i have notates. steve, can you say the same? peter is lis

like obama is winning when, in fact, that's not the case. the new argument on the right is that if you reconfigure all of e mast pol to sk if i them to make them be less liberal, they don't look like this anymore with 20 straight polls for obama. instead they look like this. hey, yeah, that's way better. mitt romney is actually nning all ofheecent polls at you thought president obama was in the guy who did this it neat trick, the unskewing of the polling so mitt romney wins in every one instead of losing in every one, that guy explained his methodology to the fol at buzz feed sayi he created this new romney-always-wins polng , e,erdi "washington post" poll that just didn't look right noting that the polling had sampled more democrats than republicans. sampling more democrats than republicans. hm, that sounds like a reasonable argument. evodghveso be suspicious of the polls showing president obama leading if, in fact, pollsters are systemicly oversampling democrats when doing their polling. inat's not what pollers e they are not going out and looking for too many democrats for their pol
